Mental health professionals will never be out of business because everyone wonders if their mother loved them.  --Rose Monteiro
Rest assured, whether or not your parent(s) had the capacity to love you, it was your birthright to be loved, cherished, seen, and understood.

In the book, Tattoos on the Heart, Father Greg Boyle writes over and over about the no-matter-what-ness of love and compassion.  Please read it as the love letter to yourself that we all deserve.

Oprah often says that when we know better, we do better.  I have come to learn that when we are happy, that is, feel loved, connected and whole, we do a lot better.

I wish us all a whole lotta love, peace, joy and freedom.

Happy July.
